Barn House

Centurion, Gauteng


The Barn House accommodates an impressive array of green technologies and plays with forms, materials, building methods, passive heating and cooling and sustainable (‘green’ & ‘eco’) concepts. The sustainability cycle of the building incorporates elements that reduce the amount of energy used over its lifetime, the reuse, upcycling and recycling of the materials at the end of the building’s use.
